I still have questions

Recommended Posts


I have HSV 2 but I do not have any outbreaks or none that I know of. I asked my doctor if I was able to pass it by kissing and she asked if I had ever had a lesion on my lip and I had told her no. She told me that if I had never had one there then I could not pass it that way. My question is if I am not having any symptoms, how do I really know how I can give it to someone since the virus can spread to other parts of the body besides the genitals? And if I do have an outbreak in other parts besides my genitals, will I always be contagious from that spot? If anyone has any answers or can direct me to where I can get some answers, it would be greatly appreciated!

As far as i know if you never had an outbreak on your lip you are not contagiouse there....How ever it is possible to spread throughout your body as far as everyone else has told me it is hard after your body has built the antil bodies......So if you have an outbreak somewhere ex. Your pubic region that place has a possibility of spreading even if there are no out breaks it could be shedding...

hope that helps merry christmas!!

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
